Mission – Vision: Content
The Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) was born from the idea that health care access is essential to the well-being of people. We understand that this “well-being” is not limited to the absence of illness – it is impacted by the entire health care experience. Issues such as the long hours spent travelling to and from hospitals, hospital overflow and increasing wait times affect patients, physicians and the system as a whole.
Removing these access barriers is what motivates our partners and our people everyday. We are uncompromising in our pursuit to ground health care in the patient experience, because doing the right thing is at the core of what we do.
This is why OTN champions Virtual Care. It is a solution that assists in making Ontario’s health care system truly universal. It enables virtual connections between patients and physicians, physicians and experts, innovators and partners and with government. Each time Virtual Care is used, money, time and travel is saved for patients, physicians and our government.
